The Planning Awards are back for 2022!

The essential awards showcasing the best work and people across the Planning and Placemaking sectors

The Planning Awards are back for their eighth successive year to showcase the outstanding work across the planning and placemaking sectors. The awards recognise excellence in planning and associated placemaking disciplines including heritage conservation, urban design, economic development, partnership working, environmental consultancy, housing and law.

With categories across the spectrum, including the new Award for Planning to Address Climate Change, these awards are the best opportunity to champion your people and projects, and get the recognition you deserve.

The awards will be showcased at a live awards ceremony on the 9th June 2022 at The Mermaid, London, and also in extensive coverage in Planning's online and print products.
